Anton Zoran Music (Boccavizza 1909-Venezia 2005)

After graduating from the Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb, he undertook a study trip to Spain in 1935. He left the country in 1936 to make long stays in Dalmatia, fascinated by its landscapes, and later in Ljubljana and Gorizia. In 1943 he exhibited in Trieste at the Galleria d'Arte al Corso. During World War II, in 1944, he was deported to the Dachau concentration camp where he secretly managed to execute drawings. After liberation in 1945, he returned to Gorizia and later to Venice, where he resumed painting and participated in the Biennale. In 1951 he was awarded the Paris Prize, organized in Cortina d'Ampezzo. During this period his painting focused on the depiction of Dalmatian landscapes and later focused on the surrounding environments, particularly Italian landscapes. After a stay in the French capital, he participated in the Venice Biennale in 1956 and 1960. In 1970, with the cycle We are not the last, he established himself as one of the masters of twentieth-century Europe.
